Jill's head shave for FMA UK

Jill Liman will shave her head to raise funds for FMA UK and to raise awareness about fibromyalgia. Jill has been suffering with fibromyalgia since her teenage years, but has been diagnosed only 4 years ago. Fibromyalgia causes fatigue, pain and sleep problems so bad that Jill had to take early medical retirement from the Tesco store she working for.

Jill tells us how she copes with the condition: ‘’Every day is different, I am telling to myself that I will get up and do something around the house. However I f I have a bad night, which happens most of the time, I am unable to get out of the bed. My legs don’t want to move and my back and arms ache’’. Jill’s says that her husband, Salih, looks after her well. ‘’I cannot do everyday tasks, like cooking and cleaning. My husband does it’’. She adds: ‘’having this condition at the moment makes me so tired, I just want to stay in bed and sleep forever. Sometimes I don’t see anyone for days- just my husband and our two dogs. My friend, Rosy, helps a lot. She helps me out of bed and she takes me shopping and out to girly coffee or tea together, which is nice’’.

Jill’s head shave will take place on the 13th November in Sible Hedingham (Colne Valley in Braintree District of Essex) in Swan Street Barbers.
